The NHS 111 Service will make it easier for the public to access urgent health and social care and will drive improvements in the way in which the NHS delivers care.
It will provide a comprehensive service by delivering clinical assessments of callers’ needs at the first point of contact and ensuring that Patients are referred straightaway to the service that best meets their needs - taking into account their location, the time of day at which they call, and the capacity of local services.
NHS Yorkshire and Humber has been through a rigorous procurement process to choose a provider to deliver the new NHS 111 service across the region and to provide the West Yorkshire Urgent Care Service (an out of hours primary care medical service, providing access, assessment and treatment to the residents of West Yorkshire and Craven).
